a personal concern there, too. >> lord dunmore, what was his position? >> he was the royal governor of virginia and he was also a guy with an incredible ego. an awful lot of inability to make decisions because he was so caught up in himself and his potential success. >> you called him combative, touchy and arrogant. >> well, arrogant like so many of the british aristocracy would have been. but he was an odd duck. when he captured and built some of the ports in the ohio valley, he named them after his subsidiary titles. he was the baron blair. it was fort dunmore for a while. he had an ego a mile wide. >> so what was the relationship in those days between george washington and dunmore? >> they knew each other. late winter, before the hostilities got intense in the capital of virginia, they were on some terms. they were both land speculators and they shared in this interest and george washington was developing those and dunmore was buying all that he could get. but then they fell out. i don't think they fell out so much for personal reasons. this guy's way of doing business was sendin

of law and just a rogue gallery of war lords, revolutionaries and violent groups of individuals that have taken advantage of that ungoverned space. and created no end of problems. so building towards greater stability and security in that region has to be our focus. i know the d.o.d. has done some work in that region. we're currently working with the ugenden army in dealing with the lord's resistance army one that has helped to destabilize the drc but we have also in the past tried to work with the drc's military training one battalion a few years back to very strong success. that battalion is considered to be able and capable but too small to make a big difference that needs to be made. so i believe there is a critical role that the d.o.d. can play in building the security capacity in the eastern drc and working with the surrounding nations like rwanda and uganda and burundi and others that are critical. so we want to explore further. and obviously a huge diplomatic element to this as well. i think it's critically important that the u.s. engage, that the u.n. engage a high level envoy to
's friends. his best friends she didn't like at all. lord beaverbrook and brendon bracken who was a strange irishman who once claimed churchill was his father and churchill didn't do anything to diminish the rumor. she didn't like the gambling winston did before the war in mon monte carlo. he never did well. she had a nervous temperament her daughter wrote. one year i think they had four dinners alone, 1944, clementine and winston. and if they were at dinner aides were coming in, bombs were falling and the house was full of guests. russian diplomats she doesn't want there. she had a very hard time. i'm not sure -- again i mentioned earlier winston was not sympathetic or empathetic over matters of mental anxiety, that sort of thing. host: what did you conclude about his mental health? guest: that was interesting. i had long talk with my editor bill tphreufpls -- phillips and they warn against a retroactive diagnosis but this whole black dog thing started in a letter he wrote in 1911. he never used the term again. a and coville and others who worked for him, nannies would say to their childre

[cheers and applause] >> thank you. for that speech of proposition. got us off to a contributing start. now to oppose the propo
, solomon should have known, fear the lord is the beginning of wisdom. in the early days of our country , people sought wisdom through prayer. the constitutional convention when they could not reach an agreement after nearly five weeks, ben franklin stood up and the contentiousness stopped and someone wrote that george washington looked like he had a relieved look on his face. 80-year-old ben franklin, overweight, gout, arthritis, had problems getting up and down sometimes, but his mind was still brilliant and that's when he pointed out that he had not once thought of applying to the father of lights to illuminate. we have his speech because he recorded it and wrote it in his own handwriting and madison was talking notes but we have franklin's speech and it has provided such solace to me. he pointed out he pointed out to his friends that there were time, everyone could remember, back in the revolution, they asked god for specific things and god answered their prayers. and he said these words. he said, our prayers were heard and they were graciously answered. if a sparrow cannot fall to

about and you could see the reflection in england, permanent power in the monarch, property in the lords, numbers in the commons, an emerging independent judiciary. so i thought maybe not so easy to get a patent, even though i said it was a brilliant implementation. but federalism, clearly a unique contribution and in another place i said it was a unique contribution of the framers, a political theory. the framer had the idea you had more freedom if you have two governments instead of one, you almost get intellectual whiplash. why more freedom if you have two governments? 3 now, many students think of federalism as being a brilliant administrative device this was the biggest landmass since the roman empire to attempt a unified government and it took, what, six weeks to get from new england to south carolina. so if you're a businessperson or astute manager, you have territorial divisions in a certain sense. and in the 160's and 1970's when european states persons and scholars were looking at american federalism to see if they could find some lessons for the european union, many of them th

of problems. i know the dot has done some work in that region and we are dealing with the lord's resistance army, one of the group said this helped destabilize the drc. we have tried to work with the drc pose a military. the battalion is considered to be able and capable but is too small to make a big difference. there is a critical role that the dod can play in building security capacity and working with the surrounding nations like rwanda and others that are critical to bring stability. there's a huge diplomatic element to this as well. it is critically important that the u.s. and u.n. engaged by high-level envoy to that region to make a critical difference in bringing the partners together. i know that secretary carson has been working on the issue and others have as well. this is something that does matter to us. there is incredible opportunity , economic opportunity for trade, partnerships with u.s. businesses, but we have to give them stability in order to take advantage of those opportunities. i thank the chairman for having this hearing and learning what more can do to help the situ

[inaudible] my question is more about historical and interpretation. we share that --, and planned to use think the united states -- what do think it keeps us so deeply in our ongoing philosophy of what democracy should be? >> that is a separate question. there are two in my ignorance. the continental french a might meant and the british and alignment. they differ radically. the british enlightenment was empirical and temperate. the french enlightenment was severe. one
better and it will get better. around that leads me to my final sentence which is to quote lord north quith who owned the london times and the daily mail. and he said somewhere someone is trying to suppress the real story, the rest is advertising. and what i tried to do in my book was separate the real story from advertising. thank you. [applause] >> we are going to have a q&a and the c-span person is going to walk around with that instead of me and he wants to catch you so don't start talking until he gets there. so if you want to be on c-span, raise your hand. would anybody thrike ask me a -- like to ask me a question or talk about something? oh, come on. does anyone want to say something? >> go ahead. >> i've read that i guess maybe it's common knowledge that when rupert murdock purchased the "wall street journal" he was trying to take away circulation on the times and he was introducing that greater new york section. do you know if he's been successful with that? >> i think he's been moderately successful. he has a great amount of financial resources and he's pouring them in. i do
